"With fifty youth conservatory dancers, ages 6 to 17, plus two guest adult performers, Appalachian Cinderella takes you back to the age of the roaring '20s and of Prohibition - a time of moonshine, G-men, and dreaming of life in the 'Big City.'
Set on an idyllic Appalachian farm filled with beautiful buttercups, daisies, and a statuesque sunflower, plus pink piglets, squawking chickens, a sweet coupling of cow & bull, and a long-legged donkey, Appalachian Cinderella tells the tale of Ella-Mae, left alone with her horrid step-mother and step-sisters when her father, Jack Daniels, is carted off to the "Big House" for making hooch. Her only comfort is resourceful Granny.
Treated poorly and excluded by her step-family from a dance given in honor of visiting Jake "Da Prince" Charming, Ella-Mae and Granny find a way for her to attend and shine on the dance floor, capturing first the eye and then the heart of Jake. Although Granny whisks Ella-Mae away from the scene, Jake searches high and low in Deadman's Holler until he finds her and then makes all her dreams come true."

Where we nurture each student's individual spirit through the discipline of dance. We train artists to realize the fullness of their personal potential and self-expression while respecting the same in others. At Sonoma Conservatory of Dance, we train artists, some of whom may become professional dancers, all of whom will make a place for art in their lives.
We look forward to sharing our love of dance with you!
